It's Mont St Michel, which is one of my favorite places in Brittany.
Featuring this dramatic medieval cathedral and town built ontop of this rock of an island.
I am happy with my capturing a swirling sky borrowing from VanGogh. The terrain in the foreground proved challenging, but I feel I captured a sense of wildness and unkempt grasses blowing with the breeze.
The castle itself was also troubling and provided a useful lesson. I had painted the sky and let it dry entirely before painting the castle over it.
I now feel i should have painted the castle at the same time, as I would have been using the exact hues i used in the sky.
Doing so would probably have let the castle inhabit the same space as the sky, and i think today it looks very like the castle was painted later, like an after thought.
But it still makes for a dramatic piece i think.
